Chinese‐American children's ethnic identity: Measurement and implications
This study examined ethnic identities of Chinese‐American children living in the Chicago and San Francisco Bay Areas. The instrument measuring Ethnic Identity consisted of twenty cultural indicators. The reliability and validity of using this instrument were discussed extensively. The results showed that a large majority of these children could be classified as “Bicultural, while fewer were classified as “Mostly Americanized,”; or “Mostly Chinese.”; The findings suggest that, although the majority of these children were being brought up in the American mainstream, they were living between the two cultures. © 2000, Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
